FOR TODDLERS 1+*, MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE
Water is one of the few things in life that we literally cannot live without. While we can go days without food, or often find “things” that we could substitute if worse comes to worse, there is no real substitute for water.
On the same note, there is also no other substance that can attribute so much to our overall well being like a simple glass of water can. From refueling our energy to “instantly” curing a headache, water can do so much more than simply quenching our thirst.
However, not all water is created equal and some water, believe it or not, can do more harm than good to our bodies. That’s why it was so refreshing to learn about AlkaH2o and their tropical Artesian water that has a pH of 9.5 – naturally. Literally unlike anything else on the planet, this water is purely divine.
THE PRODUCT: Found 580 ft. underground in a tropical Artesian well in the pristine mountains of Puerto Rico, AlkaH2o is unlike any water you’ve every encountered. With a natural 9.5pH, this water not only delivers a smooth and luxurious flavor, it gives your body a healthy replenishing unlike any other.
AlkaH2o originates in one of the most pristine places on earth. With an extremely high amount of rainfall, the water is then slowly filtered by gravity through volcanic rock until it reaches the Alka artesian well. Through this process, electrolytes are added to the water and a 9.5 pH naturally occurs.
While there are countless companies that have manipulated water to make it have a higher pH, AlkaH2o is the only 9.5 pH bottled water created by nature itself, and therefore, one of the only stable Alkaline waters, as well. This means that if other manipulated waters are left out of the bottle for long periods of time, they will quickly revert back to a low 7 pH (or even acidic water), while AlkaH2o will keep its alkalinity.
Available in various sizes including: 16.9oz, 1L and 2L bottles, whether hanging around the house or on-the-go, AlkaH2o has a way to keep you hydrated above and beyond your typical water.
NUTRITION-WISE: Science points to a 9-9.5 pH level for optimal hydration and health benefits. However, the majority of the water we drink is well below these levels, whether or not it is filtered. In fact, much of the water we drink is actually on the acidic side and can cause many people to feel heart burn, get headaches, or experience other negative side effects that most wouldn’t know to attribute to their water usage.
Since most of the body is water-based (50-60%), the pH level of water has profound effects on all body chemistry, health, and disease. All regulatory mechanisms (including breathing, circulation, digestion, and hormonal production) serve the purpose of balancing pH, by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells. If the pH deviates too far to the acidic side or too far to the alkaline side, cells become poisoned by their own toxic waste and die.
Just as acid rain can destroy a forest and alkaline wastes can pollute a lake, an imbalanced pH can corrode body tissue and slowly eat into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like corrosives eating into marble. If left unchecked, an imbalanced pH will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.
WHERE TO BUY: AlkaH2o products are just hitting U.S. soil and will be available in Houston, TX starting at the end of June 2014 – which is just a few weeks away!

FINAL THOUGHTS: Keeping your body in the perfect state of pH balance is tough. And while you will hear doctors and other medical professionals talk about the foods you eat or the selection of beverages you drink in order to help you do this, it is much more rare that they will discuss your water intake. However, in terms of quantity, water is not only the substance that we consume the most of, it is also what makes up the majority of our bodies, literally!
That is why AlkaH2o is so great and has come to be such a huge part of my every day routine. With a natural occurring pH of 9.5, this water not only tastes luxuriously pure and smooth, it also helps to keep my body in the perfect balance of health. This is not only important for me personally, but for my “future family” as well.
Did you know that having a body that is too acidic not only helps to feed cancer and disease, it can also be a major cause for infertility? Moreover, it can also make your breastmilk measure on the acidic side, causing your baby to spit-up more frequently and to have symptoms of colic. Drinking water that has a higher pH can help diminish these reactions and help your whole body run at an optimal level.
For those of you who are trying to conceive, are nursing a baby, or simply want to feel better and do the best for your body, than you’ve got to try this water!

*Many people have their opinions on when to start giving water to their little ones. My son breastfed way past the 1-year mark, but started drinking water at around 8-9 months when he started showing interest (I can’t remember the exact date). As long as your baby is still getting enough nutrients else where (from milk and/or food), than giving them water will not do any harm and in fact, giving them such high alkalinity water is really good for their little systems and will help keep them “in check” (especially if they aren’t nursing).
